The Stranglers – The Artist
The Stranglers are an English rock band who emerged via the punk rock scene. Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are one of the longest-surviving and most “continuously successful” bands to have or they originally built a following within the mid-1970s pub rock scene. While their aggressive, no-compromise attitude identified them as one of the instigators of the UK punk rock scene that followed, their idiosyncratic approach rarely followed any single musical genre and the group went on to explore a variety of musical styles, from new wave, art rock, gothic rock and pop. The original personnel were drums / Jet Black, bass player/vocalist Jean-Jacques Burnel, guitarist/vocalist Hugh Cornwell and keyboardist/guitarist Hans Wärmling, who was replaced by keyboardist Dave Greenfield within a year.
Peaches – The Song
Peaches, is a 1977 single by The Stranglers from the album Rattus Norvegicus. is a seminal punk rock song and single by The Stranglers. The track peaked at No. 8 in the UK Singles Chart. “Peaches” was controversial because of its anarchist, non-conformist, “sexual” content, primarily aimed at shaking up the establishment and poking the eye of the new politically correct punk movement. The song’s narrator is girl-watching on a crowded beach one hot summer day. It is never made clear if his lascivious thoughts (such as “there goes a girl and a half”) are an interior monologue, comments to his mates, or come-on lines to the attractive women in question. Critic Tom Maginnis writes that Hugh Cornwell sings with “a lecherous sneer, the sexual tension is so unrelenting as to spill into macho parody or even censor-baiting territory” The single was a double A-side with pub rock song “Go Buddy Go” which was played on UK radio at the time and also on the band’s BBC TV Top of the Pops appearance because the sexual nature of the lyrics of “Peaches” caused the BBC to ban it. Still, “Peaches” it reached No. 8 in the UK Singles Chart. The radio cut, however, had to be re-recorded with less explicit lyrics: “clitoris” was replaced with “bikini”, “oh shit” with “oh no” and “what a bummer” with “what a summer”.
The Bikini – The Shape
Modelled into the rear of a young lady wearing a bikini. A bikini is typically a women’s two-piece swimsuit featuring two triangles of fabric on top, similar to a bra and covering the woman’s breasts, and two triangles of fabric on the bottom, the front covering the pelvis but exposing the navel, and the back covering the buttocks. The size of the top and bottom can vary from full coverage of the breasts, pelvis, and buttocks, to very skimpy designs like a thong or G-string that cover only the areolae and mons pubis, but expose the buttocks.
